Things to look for in a divorce lawyer

Some important things to remember from your lawyer’s perspective

He or she realizes how important your case is to you and they also need to take care of other cases and may not be available 24 hours a day to talk. That does not mean your case is not being handled properly, it’s just part of a successful attorneys practice.

Divorce cases take time, particularly when children are involved. Despite your desire to get things done immediately, the case must runs it’s course and often cannot be pushed any faster.

Your lawyer must respond to your spouse’s lawyer when they try and take some action. This type of work cannot always be predicted but takes time and energy to deal with. Expect some costs to arise as a result of your spouse’s efforts.

Your attorney needs to know everything to properly handle your case. If you fail to tell your lawyer everything, you are putting yourself at a disadvantage and jeopardizing your own case. If you leave certain facts out, your attorney will not be able to develop the correct plan of action for your case. You must trust your attorney. Understand, it is highly unlikely that any skeletons in your closet will shock your lawyer. He or she has seen it all before and will not judge you.

Your case does not change every day. Although you may learn something new or remember something else, your lawyer cannot always do something with that information that day. It is best to talk to your lawyer every few weeks or so and update them at one time, rather than calling all the time. Remember, every time you call, the lawyers office will likely charge you, so use their time wisely.

  • Family Law Expertise

    Most lawyers are in a general practice and do some of everything. One of our main focuses is on Family law and being expert at divorce, custody and support matters.

    We are in court daily, working with the family court judges, their staff and clerks, the Friend of the Court office, the Bar Association and other attorneys working in this area. We pride ourselves on fighting hard for our clients while working well with everyone.

    Our extensive experience and strong relationship with the courts and our peers leads many judges and attorneys to hire us to act as Mediators in other Family Law cases. Make no mistake; having a strong working relationship with the court can have a massive impact on your case. Unlike most attorneys, we have no fear of the court room and are in trial regularly against the best in the business. We see the judges every week and maintain strong ties with their staff.
